ls a flying bird in a bottle lighter than it sitting on the bottom?
When the cap is sealed, the bird and the bottle form a sealed system. As long as the bird is not accelerating up or down (ie sitting on the floor or flying level) the center of mass of the system is moving with a constant vertical velocity. On the otherhand, if the bird is accelerating downwards, then so is the center of mass. The net force on the system must be a small downwards force - so the upwards force from the scale is slightly less than the gravity force on the system. Thus the scale reads a smaller weight than the weight of the sitting bird in the bottle. Similarly, ifthe bird is accelerating upwards, the net force is also upwards - the scale reads a higher weight than the sitting bird. Physically, what is happening is that when the bird is j flying steadily, it is pushing air downwards with its' wings to keep it up in the air. This causes a wind to j flow downwards which impacts the bottom of the bottie. pushing it down. This downwards flow of air also creates ! a slight vacuum above the wings, which creates a small force downwards on the ceiling of the bottle. The downwards force from the air on the bottle pushes! down with exactly the weight of the ,bird (if the bird is not accelerating), making the scale push upwards with an extra force. When the cap is opened, the system stops being closed and the parts really do need to be considered sperarately,i but we can get an idea about what happens by thinking about it a little: 1. If the bird is "in" the open bottle but very, very, far above the tops of the walls of the bottle, only a small amount of its down draft will be felt by the bottle - making the bottle approximately its empty weight. If the bird is sitting on the floor of the bottie, the bottle feels its whole weight. If the bird is flying in the bottle, then although all of its downdraft should hit the floor of the bottle, the small downwards force on the ceiling created by the slight vacuum made by the wings is absent, making the bottle lighter than the closed bottle.

Q. The most frequent orbital manoeuvres performed by spacecraft consist of velocity variations along the direction of flight, namely accelerations to reach higher orbits or brakings done to Image: E S A initiate re-entering in the atmosphere. In this problem we will study the orbital variations when the engine thrust is applied in a radial direction. To obtain numerical values use: Earth radius RR = 6.37 x 106 m, Earth surface gravity g = 9.81 m/s 2 , and take the length of the sidereal day to be T0 = 24.0 h. We consider a geosynchronous communications satellite of mass m placed in an equatorial circular orbit of radius ra. These satellites have an "apogee engine" which provides the tangential thrusts needed to reach the final orbit. Marks are indicated at the beginning of each subquestion, in parenthesis. Question 1 1.1 Compute the numerical value of r0. 1.2 Give the analytical expression of the velocity v0 of the satellite as a function of g, Rr, and r0, and calculate its numerical value. 1.3 Obtain the expressions of its angular momentum L0 and mechanical energy E0, as functions of v0, m, g and RT. Once this geosynchronous circular orbit has been reached (see Figure F-1), the satellite has been stabilised in the 24 desired location, and is being m readied to do its work, an error * by the ground controllers causes 0 the apogee engine to be fired / again. The thrust happens to i j be directed towards the Earth and, despite the quick reaction of the ground crew to shut the -*' engine off, an unwanted p_j velocity variation Av is imparted on the satellite. We characterize this boost by the parameter (3 = Av/v0. The duration of the engine bum is always negligible with respect to any other orbital times, so that it can be considered as instantaneous. Question 2 Suppose |3 < 1. 2.1 Determine the parameters of the new orbit, semilatus-rectum I and eccentricity 8, in terms of r0 and p. 2.2 Calculate the angle a between the major axis of the new orbit and the position vector at the accidental misfire. 2.3 Give the analytical expressions of the perigee rmm and apogee rmax distances to the Earth centre, as functions of r 0 and P, and calculate their numerical values for P = 1/4. 2.4 Determine the period of the new orbit, T, as a function of T0 and P, and calculate its numerical value for P = 1/4. Question 3 3.1 Calculate the minimum boost parameter, P esc , needed for the satellite to escape Earth gravity. 3.2 Determine in this case the closest approach of the satellite to the Earth centre in the new trajectory, r'min, as a function of r0.

Contd. from page no. 4 Conservation of momentum A ball at rest has no momentum. It is in its state of inertia. According to the law of conservation of momentum, the vector sum of the momentum is constant. That applies to closed systems. When ball A is going to the right along the X axis it has momentum only in that direction. For our purposes let's say that the momentum of ball A is 5 m/s. Ball B is in the path of ball A. Ball A hits ball B and they move off in their respective angles. Momentum is represented by (mass * velocity). If ball A has a mass of 2 kg the momentum is equal to 10 kg m/s. Ball B also has amass of after kg. Dependent on the collision angle of ball A are the before ® angles at which both balls collision B will roll. Let's assume 60 o30" that ball A will go off at Kj 30 degrees and ball B will go off at 60 degrees. After vA they come in contact with one another both balls will have a y and ax component. These components can be figured out with geometry.

Collision The key to billiards is to know what is going to happen to the balls after the collisions. This is important not only for making shots and pocketing balls, but also for setting up your next shot by placing the cue ball in line for the next ball. There are always ways of altering the spin of the ball to change where the ball will end up in. In a head on collision, the object ball will continue on the path that the cue ball was on before the collision took place. In angular, two dimensional collisions, the two balls will always have a resulting angle of 90 degrees. A collision is also takes place when you strike the ball with the cue stick. This is called an impluse. The collisions in a game of pool can get very, very complex. For example, when you break, many of the balls are already moving at different speeds and different angles. These are difficult collisions to figure out vectors are needed to sort out that. The velocity of the ball can be determined by using vectors. The formula for this

questions.

muscles of eye control the curvature of the lens in the eye and hence can alter the effective focal length of the system. When the muscles are fully relaxed, the focal length is maximum. When the muscles are strained the curvature of lens increases (that means radius of curvature decreases) and focal length decreases. For a clear vision the image must be on retina. The image distance is therefore fixed for clear vision and it equals the distance of retina from eye-lens. It is about 2.5 cm for a grown-up person. A person can theoretically have clear vision of objects situated at any large distance from the eye. The smallest distance at which a person can clearly see is related to minimum possible focal length. The ciliary muscles are most strained in this position. For an average grownup person minimum distance of object should be around 25 cm. A person suffering for eye defects uses spectacles (eye glass). The function of lens of spectacles is to form the image of the objects within the range in which person can see clearly. The image of the spectacle-lens becomes object for eye-lens and whose image is formed on retina. The number of spectacle-lens used for the remedy of eye defect is decided by the power of the lens required and the number of spectacle-lens is equal to the numerical value of the power of lens with sign. For example power of lens required is +3 D (converging lens of focal length 100/3 cm) then number of lens will be +3.

done by the gas is given by

P = pressure of gas, dV = change in volume In PV diagram work will be area under the curve. A few comments regarding this integral operator needs to be made. First along the path taken in going from A to B, an equation of state ( i.e. P =f (V) ) may or may not exist. One. can express P as a function of V only if the external conditions are changed in such a way that at every point on the path the system can be regarded as an equilibrium state and Such a transformation is called a quasi-static transformation. If the transformation is such that when the sequence of the changes in external conditions are reversed, the system retraces its path from Bio A. This transformation is called reversible. All reversible transformations are quasistatic but all quasistatic processes need not be reversible. If the transformation from A to B is not reversible, the transition from A to B cannot be represented by curves on PFdiagram. Such transitions are represented by broken lines joining A and B. The spontaneous processes of nature are irreversible. Several example can be cited. The free expansion of a gas is irreversible. The combustion reaction of a mixture of petrol and air ignited by a spark cannot be reversed. Free expansion (expansion of gas against vaccum) differs from all other process.In the case of free expansion work done by the gas is zero although it cannot be calculated by P-V diagram. Directions for Q. 6 to 10 \ If the given statement is true, then fill bubble for (a) and if given statement is false fill the bubble for (b). 6. All reversible processes are not quasistatic but all quasistatic processes are reversible. 7. In case of free expansion of gas work done by the gas can not be calculated by A'-Fdiagram because free expansion cannot take place reversibally. 8. For non zero pressure of the gas there will be non zero work whenever there will be non zero volume changes of the gas. 9. Total work done by the gas depends upon intermediate process.

10. For volume changes from K, to VQ work done by gas in process 1 will be greater than in process 2. PASSAGE : 3 (Read the following passage and answer the questions number 11 to 15. They have only one correct option) Charges are concentrated exclusively on the external surface of a conductor. Therefore neither the material of the conductor nor its mass are of any importance for its capacitance. Capacitance depends on the shape and surface area of the conductor. Since a conductor is liable to be electrified by induction, its capacitance is influenced by other conductors in its vicinity and by the medium they are in. To fulfil its function the capacitor must be able to store accumulated charges and energy for appreciable time to obtain a definite capacitance one can conveniently take two conductors and arrange them as close to each other as possible and place a dielectric between them. The dielectric between the conductors plays two fold role. Firstly, it increases the capacitance and secondly prevents the neutralization of the charges, that is it prevents them from jumping from one conductor to the other. For this reason electrical breakdown strength (The maximum electrical field which a dielectric can withstand, also called dielectric strength of dielectric) should be high. In order to keep the capacitance constant and independent of surrounding bodies the entire electric field should be contained between the plates. For this reason the distance between the plates should be small as compared to their linear dimensions. To protect the capacitor from external influences it is housed in a shell. Mathematically we can relate q = CFand for a parallel plate capacitor fully filled with a dielectric C = According to paragraph answer. 11. (a) (b) (c) (d)

Dear Students, We know that its too difficult to remember The spectral classification sequence (star classes on a stellar evolution diagram). So we are presenting some mneumonics to learn few very difficult things in Physics in a very easy way. 1. The different categories of radiation, in order of increasing wavelength Cary grant expects unanimous votes in movie reviews tonight. Cosmic, gamma, X-rays, ultraviolet, visible, infrared, microwave, radio, television. 2. Whether current leads voltage or lags it in reactive circuits Think of 'Eli the Ice man'. In inductive (L) circuits, voltage (E) leads current (I), hence ELI. In capacitive (C) circuits, it is the other way, so ICE. 3.

The direction in which the current flows in a thermocouple Contributed by Neha Chandak, Nagpur made from antimony and bismuth metals abc - The current flows from the antimony to the bismuth through the cold junction. The definition of mechanical advantage Men always like eating. MA - load over effort (1/e)

(For Q.NO. 1 to 45) Only one option is correct and there will be negative marking in these PASSAGE 1: (Read the following passage and answer the questions numbered 1 to 5. They have only one correct option) An experimental setup of verification of photoelectric effect is shown in ,8 Q, 100 cm the diagram. The o voltage across the electrodes is 2Q 20 V measured with the help of an ideal voltmeter, and which can be varied by moving jockey Jon the potentiometer wire. The battery used in potentiometer circuit is of 20 V and its internal resistance is 2 Q.. The resistance of 100 cm long potentiometer wire is 8 Q. The photocurrent is measured with the help of an ideal ammeter. Two plates of potassium oxide of area 50 cm2 at separation 0.5 mm are used in the vacuum tube. Photo current in the circuit is very small so we can treat potentiometer circuit an independent circuit. The wavelengths of various colours is as follows :

It is found that ammeter current remains unchanged (2 pA) even when the jockey is moved from the end P to the middle point of the potentiometer wire. Assuming all the incident photons eject electron and the power of the light incident is 4 x io - 6 W. Then the colour of the incident light is (a) green (b) violet (c) red (d) orange 4. Which of the following colour may not give photoelectric effect from this cathode? (a) green (b) violet (c) red (d) orange 5. When other light falls on the anode plate the ammeter reading remains zero till, jockey is moved from the end P to the middle point of the wire PO. Thereafter the deflection is recorded in the ammeter. The maximum kinetic energy of the emitted electron is (a) 16 eV (b) 8 eV (c) 4 eV (d) 10 eV Passage 2 : (Read the following passage and answer the questions numbered 6 to 10. They have only one correct option). Two closed identical conducting containers are found in the laboratory of an old scientist. For the verification of the gas some experiments are performed on the two boxes and the results are noted. Experiment 1. When the two containers are weighed WA = 225 g , WB = 160 g and mass of evacuated container Wr = 100 g. Experiment 2.

They have only one correct option). In a certain experiment to measure the ratio of charge and mass of elementary charged particles, a surprising result was obtained in which two particles moved in such a way that the distance between them remained constant always. It was also noticed that, this two particle system was isolated from all other particles and no force was acting on this system except the force between these two masses. After careful observation followed by intensive calculation it was deduced that velocity of these two particles was always opposite in direction and magnitude of velocity was 103 m/s and 2 x 103 m/s for first and second particle respectively and masses of these particles were 2 x IO"30 kg and 10 30 kg respectively.

Read the passages carefully and answer the following Multiple Choice Questions based on each passage. Each questions has one or more than one correct answer/s. Passage 1: In the beginning, electricity and magnetism were entirely separate subjects. The one dealt with glass rods and cat's fur, pith balls, batteries, currents, electrolysis, and lightning; the other with bar magnets, iron filings, compass needles, and the North Pole. But in 1820 Oersted noticed that an electric current could deflect a magnetic compass needle. Soon afterward, Ampere correctly postulated that all magnetic phenomena are due to electric charges in motion. Then, in 1831, Faraday discovered that a moving magnet generates an electric current. By the time Maxwell and Lorentz put the finishing touches on the theory of electricity and magnetism were inextricably intertwined. They could no longer be regarded as separate subjects, but rather as two aspects of a single subject: electromagnetism. Faraday had speculated that light, too, is electrical in nature. Maxwell's theory provided spectacular justification for this hypothesis, and soon optics- the study of lenses, mirrors, prisms, interferences and diffraction was incorporated into electro-magnetism. Hertz, who presented the decisive experimental confirmation for Maxwell's theory in 1888, put it this way: "The connection between light and electricity is now established In every flame, in every luminous particle, we see an electrical process Thus, the domain of electricity extends over the whole of nature. It even affects ourselves intimately: we perceive that we possess an electrical organ-the eye." By 1900, then, three great branches of physics: electricity, magnetism and optics, had merged into a single unified theory.

the principle of relativity is hardly new; it was stated clearly by Galileo, Question: does it also apply to the laws of electro-dynamics? At first glance the answer would seem to be no. After all, a charge in motion produces a magnetic field, whereas a charge at rest does not. A charge carried along by the train would generate a magnetic field, but someone on the train, applying the laws of electrodynamics in that system, would predict no magnetic field. In fact, many of the equation of electrodynamics, starting with the Lorentz force law, make explicit reference to "the" velocity of the charge. It certainly appears, therefore, that electromagnetic theory presupposes the existence of a unique stationary reference frame, with respect to which ail velocities are to be measured. And yet there is an extraordinary coincidence that gives us pause. Suppose we mount a wire loop on a freight car, and have the train pass between the poles of a giant lrfagnet. As the loop rides through the magnetic field, a motional emf is established; according to the flux rule e = ~(d&/dt). This emf, remember, is due to the magnetic force on charges in the wire loop, which are moving along with the train. On the other hand, if someone on the train naively applied the laws of electrodynamics in that system, what would the prediction be? No magnetic force, because the loop is at rest. But as the magnet flies by, the magnetic field in the freight car will change, and a changing magnetic field induces an electric field, by Faraday's law. The resulting electric force would generate an emf in the loop given by equation e = ~(d<$/dt). 26. (a) (b) (c) (d) Let person on train be A and on ground B.

in a room could, for an instant, randomly fly into the wastepaper basket in the corner of the room? Is such a thing possible? Is it probable? Perhaps surprisingly, the probability of this happening is far greater that the probability that all the air molecules in the room where you are sitting have the actual positions that they have right now. Although this may seem contrary to experience, we will prove it. Let the volume of the room be VR and that of wastepaper basket be VWH. What is the chance that all n molecules in the room will randomly end up in the wastepaper? For all n molecules the probability is (VWKIVR)n. This is exceedingly small number since VWB/VR « and n is large. For a 0.3 -m 3 wastebasket and a 3000-m 3 room, the probability is (10~4)", where n = 1024 a very small number indeed. Can this • • • possibility be • • larger than • probability of • • • s p e c i f i c • • distribution of • • m o l e c u l e s I I• I 1 1 1 I I I I I I• I II I• I I 4-44^ vWB * • spread evenly 2nm throughout the ° room? Imagine the room divided into many small cells each equal to the smallest volume a molecule can be forced to occupy. This is an ill-defined number but for our purposes we will use the volume of a typical air molecule, roughly a cube 2 x 10~'° m on a side, or a volume of about 10~29m. In our room of volume 3000 m3, there are/V= 3000/10~29 = 3 x 1032 cells. The probability that a single molecule is found in a specific cell is UN. The probability that all n molecules are in their specific cells at any instant is (1 IN)" = ( l / 3 x l 0 12)n = 10"3 2'lo2S, or 10-2 8 x '°2:> times the probability of all 1024 molecules being found in the wastebasket. It is incomparably smaller. The difference is that in the second calculation the molecular positions were exactly specified whereas in the first one they could be anywhere in the wastebasket. Had we specified the positions in the first case also, the probabilities would have been the same. For the same reason all lottery numbers are equally good: 01 02 03 04 05 06 is as likely as 23 18 07 12 37 15. The distinction here is between the microstate of the system and its macrostate. A microstate is specified by giving a complete atomic description of each particle. A macrostate is specified by giving the values of

macroscopic quantities such as pressure, temperature and volume, without regard to what is happening at the atomic level. We did not know, or care about, the precise locations of the individual molecules. These two concepts are connected by the principle of equal probabilities: All possible microstates consistent with a given macrostate are equally likely. 28. (a) 1st calculation is for macrostate and 2 nd for microstate. (b) microstate corresponds to energy of atom or molecule. (c) microstate corresponds to variables measured in lab. (d) from the passage we conclude that macrostate can be achieved by probability distribution of atoms or molecules in microstates. 29. (a) For practical purposes pressure, volume etc. have a fixed value for given conditions. (b) the probability that every molecule occupies a specific location is greater than probability that all molecules are in waste basket. (c) the probability that every molecule occupies a specific location is less than probability that all molecules are in waste basket. (d) If the volume of waste basket is doubled the probability of all the molecules are found in it is increased by a factor of 2'°~ . 30. In equilibrium state (a) all the gas molecules are equally distributed in different microstates. (b) most of the molecules are in most probable microstate. (c) molecules are distributed in microstates as per temperature of each molecule. (d) nothing can be said regarding distribution of molecules in microstates. ANSWERS 1. 6. 11. 16. 19. 23. 27. 29.

Loudspeaker principle : A light voice coil is mounted so that it can move freely inside the magnetic field of a strong permanent magnet. The paper cone is attached to the voice coil and attached with a flexible mounting to the outer ring of the speaker support. Because there is a definite equilibrium position for the speaker cone and there is elasticity of the mounting structure, there is inevitably a free cone resonant frequency like that of a mass on a spring. The frequency can be determined by adjusting the mass and stiffness of the cone and voice coil.

PASSAGE I : Read the following passage and answer the questions numbered 51 to 55. They have only one correct option. Heat transfer by radiation : When the thermal radiations fall on matter they are either transmitted, absorbed or -reflected. The so-called diathermanous materials like dry air, rock saltr~carbon -di-sulphide etc. are practically transparent to these radiations. On llie~trthef-lmnd_ materials like metals, wood, water are opaque and therefore, they are known as adiathermanous or athermanous. The thermal radiations can penetrate a diathermanous material. Once radiated by a hot body, thermal radiation travel on and on as electromagnetic waves until they get absorbed by some cold athermanous body. The total energy reflected R, transmitted Tand absorbed A by certain area of the body in a given interval of time must be equal to the total energy I falling on a body over the same area and in the same interval of time, i.e. R+ T + A = /. If we define, r reflective power, the fraction of incident radiations reflected, t transmitting power, the fraction of incident radiations transmitted, a absorptive power, the fraction of incident radiations absorbed then from the above. r +t + a =1 A body which is transparent (/ — 1) is not opaque and > it is not a good reflector (a —> 0, r — 0).

The power of the source is minimum if the medium surrounding the box used is (a) either metal or rock salt (b) either wood or dry air (c) either water or wood (d) either metal or car. PASSAGE 2 : Read the following passage and answer the questions numbered 56 to 60. They have only one correct option. Huygen was the first scientist who proposed the idea of wave theory of light. He said that the light propagates in form of wavefronts. A wavefront is an imaginary surface at every point of which waves are in the same phase. For example the wavefronts for a point source of light is collection of concentric spheres which have centre at the origin. W, is a wavefront, W2 is another wavefront. The radius of the wavefront *ra> at time t is ct W„ IV2, W, wavefront in this case where c is the W, W> speed of light. The direction of propagation of light is perpendicular to the surface of wavefront. The wavefronts are plane wavefronts in case of a parallel beam of light. Huygen also said that secobdary wavelet every point of the of radius cA/ wavefront acts as the source of secondary wavelets. The tangent drawn to all secondary wavelets at a time is the 1 + Af new wavefront at that time. The wavelets are to be considered only in the forward direction (i.e. the direction of propagation of light) and not in the reverse direction. If a wavefront IVi at time t is given, then to draw the wavefront at time t + At take some points on the wavefront W, and draw spheres of radius cAt. They are called secondary wavelets. Draw a surface W2 which is tangential to all these

Letter to Editor
Dear Editor, The enrolment in physics has been steadily decreasing, all over the world, for many years. This is why 2005 was celebrated as the IYP, coinciding with the 100th anniversary of Albert Einstein's Special Relativity. One of the aims of IYP was to improve the public awareness of physics and physics education so as attract young students to physics. As an HSC teacher, I am working on the logical aspects of teaching and learning mechanics - particularly circular motion - for about 30 years and arrived at the following conclusion many years ago which is given below. Although the logical incompleteness of Newton's laws ofmotion leads us to Einstein s General Relativity, that incompleteness itself has not been completely understood. This is why we still have problems in teaching/learning 300-year old mechanics. It may be noted that Frank Wilczek [Nobel Laureate of 2004] had admitted, in October 2004, that he had maximum trouble in learning.classical mechanics. He gave a good lesson for physics education and was my subject of lectures in some Indian events of the IYP. Now, some physics organizations are considering the question: Will there be significant rise in the public awareness of physics and in the enrolment in physics? I hesitate to answer positively and in support of this 1 like to share a unique experience, concerned with a new trend in HSC physics - that is listing Understanding Oriented Questions without giving direct answers to them. Such questions are now attracting promising students like the I IT aspirants. Let us start with the question on the circular motion. In that question, a body is shown performing the VCM and students have to show directions of centripetal and centrifugal forces, with suitable arrows. Actually, students do know the VCM from std IX and hence, in my opinion, the said question is not very challenging. However, this question - in the reversed manner is much more challenging question. It is like this : The centripetal force is acting on a body, show the direction of motion. I started the lecture in a Symposium on 16th January 1993 with that reversed question. The minimum academic level of audience was MSc. Physics. But as per my expectation, some young teachers drew anticlockwise trajectory and some did the opposite. Consequently, it was easy for these two groups to understand my opinion about the logical problems in the present treatment of VCM. If this is the situation with young teachers, having done MSc. in physics, what to talk of HSC students. With such logical problems in the basic concepts of mechanics, one can hardly expect students to jump on physics for making career. Dileep V. Sathe, Pune
\

We agree with Dr. Sathe for a need for teaching physics correctly from the grass-roots level by going back to the basic concepts as given by the original authors. Constant interpretations and interpolations of the original ideas have diluted the content of physics. It is the approach to teach science that has to change if students have to learn the correct j thinking. We share his concern, as the readers can see from our editorials.. - Editor. |

Chromatic Aberration The image of a white object in white light formed by a lens is usually coloured and blurred.

Energy balance for the earth Energy arrives at the earth by electromagnetic radiations from the sun. This energy is absorbed by the surface of the earth and reradiated out into space according to Stefen's law. The only type of energy in the system that can change due to radiation is internal energy. Let us assume that any change in temperature of the earth is so small over a time interval that we can approximate the change in internal energy as zero. Thus HMIN) + HM0UT) = 0 ^ETi(IN) = ~ ^4vi(OUT) • Where the IN and the OUT refer to energy transfers across the boundary of the system of the earth, as shown in figure.

The rate of energy transfer per unit area from the sun is approximately 1340 W/m 2 at the top of atmosphere, which is called solar constant/,.. Not all of the radiation arriving at the top of the atmosphere reaches the ground. A fraction approximately 30% of it is reflected from clouds and the ground and escapes back into space. Stephen's law can be used to express the outgoing power, assuming that the earth is a perfect emmiter. Using the equation and the facts, calculation shows that result is significantly lower than the average global temperature 288 K, determined using actual measurements. This difference indicated that a major factor was left out of the analysis. This is the thermodynamic effect- of the atmosphere, which results in the additional energy being trapped in the system of the earth and raising the temperature. The energy balance concept is certainly valid and the earth, as a system, must emit energy at the same rate as it absorbs. Thus the value obtained using the energy

Such materials are said to be paramagnetic (for example : Mn 2+ ). Materials in which individual atoms or molecules have no net magnetic dipole moment are said to be diamagnetic (for example : Cu + ). Even if an atom has a net magnetic moment, a finite sample of the material will have zero magnetic moment because of random orientation of the atoms. But when a magnetic field is applied, a net alignment of magnetic dipole occurs and the medium becomes magnetically polarized or magnetized. Unlike electric polarization which is always in the same direction as E , magnetisation can be both parallel (paramagnets) and antiparallel (diamagnets) to B . A few materials (called ferromagnetic in reference to their most common example, iron) retain substantial magnetisation even after the external field has been removed - for these magnetisation is dependent not just on the present field but also on the magnetic history of the object. When placed in an external magnetic field paramagnetic substances acquire magnetisation due to alignment of atomic dipoles. But what about diamagnetic materials? Consider an electron revolving in its orbit with a magnetic field applied perpendicular to its plane of motion.

PASSAGE - 4 : (Read the following passage and answer the questions numbered 51 to 55. They have only one correct option). Magnetic Properties of Matter All magnetic fields are due to electric charges in motion. If for example, one were to examine a piece of magnetic material in an atomic scale, he would find tiny current elements created by to distinct and independent processes : Electrons orbiting around nuclei and spinning on their axes. We may treat these current loops as magnetic dipoles, and thus conclude that each electron constitutes a magnetic dipole. But these electrons within a given atom lock together in pairs with opposing spins, and thus effectively neutralise the magnetic moment of each other. Only atoms and molecules with an odd number of electrons may possess a net magnetic diploe moment.

assuming (v - v) = Av « v , we get Av = 2 mc Orbital magnetic moment being directly proportional to orbital angular momentum, a change in orbital speed means a change in orbital magnetic moment.

1 A -eV-B Am = —a A vrk = 2 4m Notice that this, change is magnetic moment is opposite to the direction of the applied field. In ordinary unmagnetised matter all electron orbits are randomly oriented and thus the orbital magnetic moments cancel out. But in presence of magnetic field each atom picks up a little extra dipole moment and these increments are all antiparallel to the field. This is the mechanism responsible for diamagnetism. Evidently it is a universal phenomenon affecting all atoms. However, it is typically much weaker than paramagnetism and is therefore observed mainly in atoms with paired electrons where paramagnetism is absent.

3. (a) We are given that a weight of 50 kg displaces the spring through 20 cm. Hence, the force constant of the spring is mg 50x9.8 -., , , , -i k=— = r- = 24.5x10" T m . M x 20x10 Let m be the suspended mass. The time period of the oscillating mass is given by T = 2?r or .,

4. (a) Let v, and v2 be the velocities of sound in oxygen and hydrogen respectively and p,, p 2 be their corresponding densities respectively. Since sound travels under the same conditions of temperature and pressure and moreover both oxygen and hydrogen are diatomic gases having the same value for y, the ratio of the two specific heats. .

Velocity of sound in hydrogen = 4 times the velocity of sound in oxygen. (b) The time period of the clock controlled by a spring depends upon the force constant of the spring and the mass of the body suspended by it, so it will not be affected when it is taken to the moon. Hence the clock based on spring will give the same time on the moon as well as on the earth. But, in case of the clock controlled by a pendulum, time period is inversely proportional to the I square root of acceleration due to gravity, i.e. T °c —t=SS On the surface of the moon the value of g is much less compared to that on the earth. So the time period will be more and hence the clock will go slow. 5. (a) The atomic spectrum of a substance is obtained due to transitions of electrons from one energy state (orbit) to another. Atom has only certain definite energy states corresponding to the stationary or permissible orbits of the electron. Hence only certain definite frequencies of radiation emitted by the atoms are possible resulting in line spectrum of the atom. When a certain quantity of hydrogen gas is excited by supplying energy from outside source, millions of hydrogen atoms are excited. These atoms absorb different amounts of energy and the electrons of the atoms jump to quantum orbits of different energy levels. These electrons make transitions to the ground state by giving up different quantities of energy: As a result, according to Bohr's frequency postulate, they give rise to spectral lines corresponding to the photons of different frequencies.

Let v be the speed of the bob when it is at the point O. Then we have j m v 2 = 19.012 m ; v2 = 19.012 x 2
„ v = Vl9.012x2 = 6.166 ms - i (b) The rise in temperature of water is A0 = [(41 ± 0.1) - (16 ± 0.5)]°C = [(41 - 16) ± (0.1 + 0.5)]°C = 25 ± 0.6°C The logic of this again becomes clear if we note that. Final temperature is anywhere between (40.9 and 41.1 )°C and initial temperature is anywhere between (15.5 and 16.5). The rise is therefore between (40.9 - 16.5) and (41.1 - 15.5) or between 24.4°C and 25.6°C. This is just the range indicated by the above equation of the temperature rise.

(c) For a semiconductor, the valence band is totally filled and the conduction band is empty at absolute zero temperature. But the forbidden gap between conduction band and valence band is quite small for semiconductor. For example, it is only 0.72 eV for germanium and 1.1 eV for silicon. Near absolute zero, the electrons cannot cross even this small forbidden gap. But as the temperature is increased, more and more number of electrons in the valence band acquire thermal energy to cross the forbidden gap and move to the conduction band where they can move under the action of even small electric field. Hence the conductivity of semiconductor increases with increase in temperature. 6. (a) Heat absorbed by the system in going from state A to state B. = 9.35 calorie = 9.35 x 4.19 J = 39.18 J Also, total work done on the system in going from state A to state B = 22.3 J. Net work done by the system in the process = (39.18 - 22.3) J = 16.88 J = 16.9 J. (b) The land is more quickly heated or cooled than seawater because specific heat of land is less than that of sea-water. So during the day time the land becomes more heated and lighter than the air over sea-water. As a result, lighter hot air on land rises up, and to maintain an equilibrium in pressure, cooler air over the sea flows towards the land. The flow of air from the sea to the land during day time is known as sea-breeze. Thus the higher specific heat of water causes the sea-breeze. 7. (a) The potenital energy gained by the bob of the pendulum in the position PR = mgh where w is the mass ofthe bob. Gain in potential energy o f t h e bob = m x 9.8 x 2 = 19.6 m. Since 3% of the initial energy is dissipated against air resistance the energy possessed by bob when passing 97 across point O is = 1 9 - 6 / w x "[QO = 1 9 0 1 2 m 7Q

For a body to come to rest, the final velocity v = 0, using these values => v = u + at => 0 = 16 — 4 / j or / = 12 s. (b) The co-efficient of friction and hence the frictional force between the surfaces of same material is greater than that in case of dissimilar material surfaces. So to reduce the frictional force, machine bearings are made of one metal while their rotating shafts are made of a different material.

(b) If v is the drift speed of electrons, the current I is I = Anev ...(i) where n is number of free electrons per unit volume. To obtain n we note that it is equal to number of atoms per unit volume because there is one free electron per atom. The number of atoms per unit volume is obtained from the fact that Avogadro number of atoms constitutes onegram mol. of material.

10. (a) The speed of sound in a gaseous medium is inversely proportional to the square root of its density i.e. v oc ^1/p. Now, the density of water-vapour is less than air and so the density of moist air (air mixed with water vapour) is less than the density of dry air. Hence the speed of sound is greater in moist air than in dry air. But the density of hydrogen is less than the density of water vapour and hence the density of moist hydrogen is more than the density of dry hydrogen. So the speed of sound in moist hydrogen will be less than in dry hydrogen. speed of light in vacuum (b) M-giass - S peed of light in glass 1.5 = x 10s speed of light in glass 3 x 10s ms "' = 2 x 10s ms"1.

If Vbe the velocity of projection and Vl the velocity of striking the plane when projected so that range up the plane is maximum, and V2 the velocity of striking the plane when projected so that the range down the plane is maximum, Prove that V = ^V\V2 A ball is thrown from a point in level with and at a horizontal distance R from the top of a tower of height H. How must the speed and angle of projection of the ball be related to R in order that the ball may just go grazing past the top edge of the tower? At what horizontal distance r from the foot of the tower does the ball hit the ground? For a given speed of projection, obtain an equation for finding the angle of projection so that r is at a minimum. Two persons simultaneously aim their guns at a ball kept on a tower. The first person releases his 'shot' with a speed of 100 ms"1 at an angle 30°. The second person is ahead of the first by a distance of 50 m and releases his 'shot' with a speed of 80 m s 1 . (a) How must he aim his gun so that both "shots" hit the ball simultaneously? (b) What is the distance of the foot of the tower from the two persons and the height of the tower? A projectile is fired from the base of cone-shaped hill. The projectile grazes the vertex and strikes the hill again at the base. If 8 be the half-angle of the cone, H its height, V the initial velocity of projection and < the angle of projection, show that ) > 4 = tan" (2 cot 8) and V = ^2gff >

A point source of light is moving uniformly along a straight line, which intersects the optical axis of a converging lens under a small angle a at a distance 2F

from the lens with a focal distance F. The speed of the source of light is v0. (i) Draw the lens, the trajectory of the source of light, and the trajectory of its image produced by the lens. (ii) Draw the vector diagram for the velocity of the source of light, the velocity of the image, and the relative velocity of the image with respect to the source. (iii) Determine the minimum relative speed of the image of the source of light with respect to the source. SOLUTIONS (b) Condition of equilibrium for torques with respect to the fulcrum is: 0.50 x 0.25 = M x 0.25 =>M = 0.50 kg The relationship between the angular speed (co) and the linear speed (v) gives: v = mR, where R is the radius of the Earth.

its smaller mass. Therefore, it takes less time to travel the distance d. Even though the force applied to objects 1 and 2 is the same, the change in momentum is less for object 2 because At is smaller. 8, (b) According to the law of conservation of energy, the potential energy of a spring transforms into the kinetic energy of a dart. The potential energy is proportional to the square of the compression, and kinetic energy is proportional to the square of the initial speed of the dart. Therefore, the speed increases the same number of times as the compression does. 9. (d) At a particular point S, in between the plates, the field due to q+ is added to q . However by the superposition of two Gaussian surfaces, E.A + E.A = — + e e due+to due to o o q q to the right to the right from P to S from S to O Thus the field is £ = — where O = — . If instead of q~ one has 4G 4i7+, the field due to 4q = — to the E o o left and that due to +q = — to the right. Therefore the resultant field is — - — - riSL or IE where e0 £o £o to the to the 0 left right £ = • The answer should be (d) and not (b). e o The reason why there is need to take one gaussian surface for one plate and full discussions are given in the author's book, Beyond the Barriers (Extension lectures in physics) by Krishnan, T.V. 10, The area of a circle is greater than the area of a square with the same perimeter.

(a). The potential is also positive (c). If Q is negative, the potential is also a negative (d). If the shell is not charged, E = 0, V= 0 (b). If the question had been a uniformly charged sphere, the potential will be a constant and will be positive or negative depending on whether the charge is +ve or negative. If "it is a certain" region of space, whether it is enclosed or not is also not known, then not only the field is zero but the potential is also zero unless it is mentioned that it is a charged enclosure. 4. (a) and (c) are wrong, because of the energy loss during the motion of the bullet inside the bob, (d) is wrong, because an object experiences the external force of gravity that changes momentum, (b) is the correct answer. The equivalent resistance of the part of circuit with the bulb B increases after the removal of the bulb A. This entails the reduction in current through the bulb C. ft. (d) (d) is correct because an amplitude, a speed of propagation, and a frequency of the wave are independent variables. 7, Object 2 has a greater acceleration because of

t = 6min —— = 2 t-3 12. (b : • The uniform motion with the terminal velocity is possible when the force of gravity of the object is equal to the force of the air resistance. j2 nd z Mg = kv' Jtd 2 Kd D — e = kv — 6 4 where M is the mass of a sphere, d is its diameter, D is the density of the material ofthe sphere, v is the velocity, and k is the constant coefficient for both spheres. From the equation (i), v is proportional to JJ . 13. (b) 14. (b ) The horizontal segment of the graph corresponds to the melting of the solids. Under the same condition, the two identical masses have different time of phase transition. The time of the second object is greater, therefore, its latent heat is also greater. (d) Comparing the slopes of the diagrams for the solid state of the two objects, we see that the same heat causes less change of temperature for the second object. Hence, the second object has the greater specific heat capacity. 15. (d) The angle of incidence of the initial ray on the inclined side of the prism is less than the critical angle, therefore, the Snell's law gives the possibility for the ray to be refracted in the direction of the ray 2. In addition, there is also a possibility of reflection along ray 3. The intensity of sound is increasing because the distance between the source and the observer is decreasing. Because the source is approaching the observer, the frequency increases due to Doppler effect. 17. (a) : Each conductor is parallel to the direction of magnetic field lines of another conductor. If the wire with current is parallel to the magnetic field line, the sine of the angle between this two directions is zero, and the magnetic force on the wire is zero. 18. (c) : The pressure P of water on the base of the aquarium is given by: P = DgH, where D is the density of water, H is the height of the wall. Pressure is a linear function of the height. Therefore, the average pressure is half of the maximum one. The force on the lateral wall can be found from: F = PavHL, where L is the length of the wall. F = [(1000 x 10 x 0.3) / 2] x 0.3 x 0.4 = 180 N. 19. (b) In the circular motion around the Earth, the centripetal force on the satellite is a gravitational force. Therefore, v2 = GM IR, where M is the mass of the Earth, R is the radius of the Earth and G is the universal gravitational constant. Therefore, the kinetic energy

increases with the decrease in the radius of the orbit. The gravitational potential energy is negative and decreases with the decrease in radius, i.e. the magnitude increases and it is negative. .20. i The lines of field of the point charge are everywhere perpendicular to the surface of the conductive plane. The pattern ofthe electric field lines over the plane is absolutely the same as for the system of two identical and oppositely charged particles separated by the distance 2h. Therefore, we can apply the Coulomb's law to calculate the force. 21 The motion will be vertically down under the force of gravity. No other forces are applied to the bob. 2:; The force will increase linearly until the pressure of water under the piston becomes equal to the atmospheric pressure P0. After this moment, the force becomes constant. 23. c = 3 x 108 m/s

2fi Introducing the vertical and horizontal axes of coordinates, we can find the rate of change of the x-component of momentum for the sand. Apx = (5.00 kg)(0.750 m/s) • = 3.75 N. (i) At 1.00 s This change occurs due to the only horizontal force on the sand

(i) The power, delivered to a resistor, is given by R- This function has a maximum at R = r. (R + r) Pmax = E1/(4r). (ii) The power, produced by the source is ?(R + r) = • This function is steadily (R + r)2 (R + r) decreasing with increasing of the resistance R (when R = 0,Ps = EV r).

Due to the properties of the point at the double-focal distance from the lens, the image of the object is also at the doublefocal distance from the lens. Therefore, the trajectory of the image of the source of light A'B' crosses the optical axis at the point P ' at the distance 2F from the lens. The triangles POC and P'OC are equivalent right angle triangles, and thus, the trajectory of the source and the trajectory of its image cross the optical axis of the lens under the same angle a. The diagram shows the different distances AB and A'B', covered by the source and its image during the same time interval, which permits to state that the speeds of the source and the image are different. (ii) While the object moves at the velocity v0, its image moves at the velocity u vo along the line 2F ..•IF 0 that crosses the optical axis X at distance 2F from the vertex of lens and has the Fig. 2 \7 same magnitude of inclination a to the axis (figure 2). (iii) The vector diagram of the velocities (figure 3) shows that the relative velocity v has its minimum magnitude when it is perpendicular to the vector u. From this condition, we can obtain the result: I v Inm = v0sin2a. The obtained condition, however, does not permit us to conclude about the instantaneous position of the source of light at the moment that matches the result for the relative velocities, as it is clear from figure. The only general conclusion is that the position of the source must guaranty the following relationship between the instantaneous speed of the source and the instantaneous speed of its image: v0 < u •

SHORT ANSWER TYPE QUESTIONS Problem 1 A magnetohydrodynamic v (MHD) generator is a device ©_ OB that converts part of the kinetic © . • T fY ' VMM.t energy of a streaming hot gas nl f into electrical energy. At its operating temperature of between 2000 and 3000 K, the gas is readily ionised. As schematically shown in the figure, the ions and electrons enter a region between two electrodes (here, parallel conducting plates of area A separated by a gap d) in which a uniform and constant magnetic field B has been set up, pointing straight out of the page. Their initial velocity v is parallel to the plates. A resistor R is connected to the plates. The magnetic field is strong enough that many charged particles will hit the electrodes and charge them before they can exit. This creates a time-varying potential difference Vbetween the plates.

momentum of individual particles when they collide with the panel. Since the molecules are absorbed, they come to rest and the change is equal to the incident momentum itself. If n is the number of molecules per unit volume, the number that strike the panel per unit of time, or flux, is equal to the product of n with the surface A of the panel and the component of the molecule's velocity perpendicular to the panel. The momentum of an individual incident molecule perpendicular to the panel is its mass m times the component of its velocity perpendicular to the panel. Since nm = p, the mass density of the molecules, this gives F = pAv2, with v the average speed of the molecules with respect to the panel, when the flux is perpendicular to it. We assume that this average speed is that of the satellite in its orbit, ie we neglect the intrinsic motion of the molecules, whose average speed with respect to the Earth is an order of magnitude lower than the satellite's speed (~ 7 km/s.) Then, with r the orbital radius of the satellite, F = pAco2r = pA(4n 2 /7 2 )r (T is the period of the orbit) = pA(GM/r2)r (Kepler's third low) pAGM/r (b) The rate what which energy is lost because of this retarding force is P = F • v = - Fear. Again, from Kepler's third law, co = - J C M / r ' , and we obtain P = -pA(GM / r3)3/2 To find the resulting rate of change in radius, we observe that the total energy of the satellite is E = - GMm/lr. If we calculate AE = E2 - Ex corresponding to Ar = r2 - r,, we see that if we can assume that Ar « ru r2, then we can approximate r 2 = rx = r, so that AE = (GMm/2r2)Ar, from which immediately follows Ar = (2r2IGMm)PAt so long as we can assume that the rate of energy loss is small and constant on the time scale of interest. Combining with the second boxed equation above yields.

The resultant net force F has a centripetal component (perpendicular to the trajectory), which does not change v, and a tangential component opposite v which slows down the ion. (b) Assuming that v remains approximately longitudinal, in a first approximation the transverse current density is J=a(vB-E) Since the potential difference V between the plates is equal to Ed as well so to RI, we can write the current I as I = JA = Aa(vB - IR/d) Solving for / gives vBd d/aA+R (c) Since V = RI, we can solve for RI in the next-to-last equation and obtain V = vBd -Id I OA Problem 2.

Inserting numbers and At ~ 6 x 105 s (a week), gives Ar = 6 k m The answer is consistent with out assumption of reasonably slow orbit decay, but it also shows that the satellite would not stay very long in orbit unless it gives itself a small compensating boost quite often.

The binding energy of the products in reaction (c) is greater than that of the reactant. Hence reaction (c)

releases energy. Since the half life is 2 hours, the intensity of the radiation falls by a factor of 2 every 2 hours. In 12 hours it will fall by a factor of (2)6 = 64. Thus, in 12 hours the intensity attains the safe level. Hence the correct choice is (b). For each species, the number of radioactive nuclei decreases exponentially with time. Hence, for both the species taken together, the total number of radioactive nuclei will decrease exponentially with time. This is best represented in plot (d).

If an object O (a thin small rod) is placed upright on principal axis at a distance R from pole (i.e, placed at centre of curvature), then the size of image is same as size of object. If a point object is placed at centre of curvature of spherical surface separating two media of different refractive index, then the image is also formed at centre of curvature, i.e., image distance is equal to object distance. Two concentric conducting spherical shells are charged. The charge on the outer shell is varied keeping the charge on inner shell constant, as a result the electric potential difference between the two shells does not change. If charge is changed on an isolated thin conducting spherical shell, the potential at all points inside the shell changes by same amount. Gas ejected from rocket will never exert thrust on the rocket if the ejected gas and the rocket move in the same direction. To exert thrust on rocket in its direction of motion, the ejected gas (w.r.t. rocket) must move opposite to velocity of rocket (w.r.t. ground).

For brick in situation of statement1 to be at rest, the net moment of all forces about its centre of mass should be zero. Moment of force on brick due to its weight about centre of mass is zero. The moment of force due to friction on brick about its centre of mass has tendency to rotate the brick in clockwise sense. Hence the right half of the brick presses the inclined plane more in comparison to the left half of the brick.

Three airplanes A, B and C, each release an object from the same altitude and with the same initial speed v0 with respect to the ground. At the moment their object is released, A is flying horizontally, B is flying upward at an angle 0 with respect to the horizontal, and C is flying at the same angle 9 as B but downward with respect to the horizontal. Assuming the ground to be horizontal and neglecting any aerodynamical effect, the speeds v at which the three objects will hit the ground satisfy (b) VA > VB = V C (d) VA = VFI = VC. Two identical conducting spheres, A and B, carry equal electric charge. They are separated by a distance much larger than their diameter and exert an electrostatic force F on each other. A third identical conducting sphere C is initially uncharged and far away from A and B. Sphere C is then brought briefly into contact with sphere A, then with sphere B, and finally removed far away. The electrostatic force between A and B is now (a) 3F/8 (b)F/2 (c) F/4 (d)F/16. On the ground, the Earth exerts a force F0 on an astronaut.

At TRIUMF, a large experimental particle and nuclear physics research facility on the campus of the University of British Columbia, one major programme involves the production of intense beams of unstable isotopes of alkali atoms (potassium K, rubidium Rb, francium Fr). These have the advantage that since their valence shell contains only one electron, their closed shell structure when they are ionised simplifies calculations. Many isotopes are produced when bombarding a calcium oxide target with 0.5 GeV protons from the TRIUMF accelerator. Until recently, the desired isotope was selected by means of the TRIUMF Isotope Separator On-Line (TISOL) now decommissioned and replaced by a combined separator/ accelerator called ISAC—and sent as a low-speed beam to experimental areas. You are asked to design a (much) simplified version of TISOL. More specifically, you want to select 38K ions whose energy is 20 keV. 38K has a mass of 6.3 x 10 26 kg. Separation should proceed in two steps, as illustrated below.

For the sake of science a physicist jumps attached to the end of a bungee cord, carrying sound measuring equipment. As he swings up and down vertically with a period of 6.0 s, he monitors the frequency of a sound source on the ground directly below him, and observes a difference of 84 Hz between the maximum and minimum frequency of the source. If the source emits at a constant 1370 Hz, and assuming no significant attenuation of his oscillations over the duration of the measurements, the amplitude of his oscillations is closest to (a) 10 m (b) 20 m (c) 32 m (d)15m.

The figure shows the desired path of a 20 keV 38K ion through the system. This path is to be achieved by means of suitable uniform time-independent electromagnetic fields. Interactions between ions can be neglected here. (a) In the first step, out of all ions (38K or not) entering the velocity selector from the left, only those that have a speed corresponding to a 20 keV 38K ion should be undeflected. Suggest a field configuration that can do this, draw a sketch showing the direction of the field(s), and derive as much information as you can about the magnitude of the field(s).

The rise and fall ofthe tide can be modelled by a wave with extremely long wavelength propagating on the water. The boundary conditions at the mouth and the far end of the bay mimic those of a standing wave on a string with on end fixed (mouth), where the vertical displacement is minimum, and the other free (far end), where displacement is maximum. This mode would have a wavelength A. = 4L, where L is the length ofthe string or, here, the length ofthe bay L = 260 km. with v = 25 m/s the speed of the waves, their period is 4(2.60 x l 0 5 m ) X=—= — = = 4.16 x 10 s v v 25 m/s 11.6 hours Now we expect the period of the tides to be about 12.4 hours. Indeed, if the Moon had a fixed position with respect to the Earth, the two tidal bulges (high tides) on Earth would move in the direction opposite the Earth's rotation with one passing through a given position every 12 hours. But the Moon moves in its own orbit with the Earth's rotation with an average period of about 29 days, i.e. 6.2° in the sky every 12 hours or 720 minutes. Therefore, it takes 25 minutes for the Moon to cover that angular distance, and this increases the tidal period to 12.4 hours. We have found that the period with which the water sloshes back and forth in the bay due to the Moon's tidal force is comparable to the period of the fundamental resonance mode for our admittedly crude model of the Bay of Fundy. Given the approximations involved, this is quite a good match, and it is likely that this resonance mechanism can explain why the tides are amplified.

where m0 is the mass of a 38K ion and K = m„v02/2. 2(2.0 xl0 4 eV)(l .6 x 10"19C) Then, A B 6.3xl0~ 26 kg 5 = 3.2 x io m/s Note that this value is much smaller than the speed of light, consistent with our ignoring relativistic effects, (b) In this case, the uniform magnetic field B2 directed into the page, as shown in the figure below, exerts a centripetal force F2 on incoming ions, giving them a circular trajectory of radius R. It does not change their energy (and speed) since magnetic fields do no work. The direction of deflection of the ions is determined from the right-hand rale applied to F2 v0XB2.

Problem 3 (a) We are looking for a configuration where the telescope, the Earth and the Sun maintain the same relative positions in a coordinate system rotating at constant angular velocity co. In other words, in that rotating system, the telescope has the following net acceleration , \GM, ^ GM2 a - co x - — ± L x (R±x) 2 where the + sign is to be used w h e n x > R and the - sign when x < R. (Technical point: since we are working in the non-inertial frame rotating with angular velocity co, an extra pseudo-acceleration (Coriolis) term dependent on dx I dt should also be present. With our assumption of a circular orbit, however, dx / dt = 0, and the Coriolis term does not contribute.) The condition that a vanishes then reads GM, GM, C X = r^O X (R + xY (b) Using Kepler's Third Law, GM, = co2R\ and introducing the parameter a = MJM}, we can eliminate co2 and M, aR 3 R x = — ++ , x2 (R ± x)2 Multiplying by xJR, and rearranging yields, with u = x/R au.2 « J - 1 = ±(1 ±uy (e) From the result in (a), there should be a point L, on the axis between the Earth and the Sun where the condition that the centrifugal acceleration co2x, equals the net gravitational acceleration (which is smaller than that due to the Sun) can be satisfied for a value of

0) equal to the Earth's, so that x, < R. Since the mass of the Earth is over 300000 times smaller than the Sun's, Lx should not be very far from Earth. It is actually 1.5 million km away, one hundred times closer than the Sun. Conversely, the same condition will be satisfied at a point L2 a bit farther than the Earth's orbit, where this time the gravitational attractions of Sun and Earth add, so that x2> R. L2 should be (and is) at about the same distance from the Earth's orbit as Lv Finally, at a point Z.3 on the other side of Sun, the condition is also satisfied where the gravitational acceleration due to the Sun's and the Earth's gravity reinforcing each other equals co2x3. Since Earth is much farther from Z-3 than from L2, L3 should be much closer to R than L2. It is a good place to hide from Earth.

(d) The point labelled L2 in the figure will be suitable for the telescope. A heat screen attached to the telescope will shield it from heat radiated by both Earth and Sun since they are always aligned as viewed from L2, leaving the rest of the sky unobstructed for observation. (e) Since the system shown in the figure is symmetric about the x axis, Lagrange points off the axis must come in pairs. So the minimum number is two. In fact, Lagrange found one pair of solutions off the axis, for a total of five.

If we take short steps, the reaction remains close to the vertical. This helps to develop more frictional force on a slippery road and makes walking possible. This is why while walking on ice it is better to take short steps. (b) : Given : m = 0.02 kg, M = 100 kg, v = 80 m s"1 Let the recoil speed of the gun be V.

While walking, there must be sufficient friction to prevent slipping of feet. Frictional force depends on the normal reaction which depends on the inclination of the reaction of the ground to the vertical. If we take long steps the inclination of the reaction of the ground to the vertical becomes large and hence the frictional force is less. (b)

(b) When the soil is not harrowed, there are large capillaries in it. Water in the soil rise up the capillary holes to the surface from where it evaporates continuously. Thus the soil continuously loses water. When harrowed, all these capillaries are destroyed, and so capillary suction stops altogether. Thus, water is retained longer in the soil. 5.(a) According to the question,

By: Prof. R.S. Randhawa 1. Two waves of equal amplitude, both travelling along the +ve x direction and wavelengths A, = X, X2 - X + AX superpose on a string. Discuss the shape of the combination at / = 0, compare it with the beats phenomena. Determine the distance from peak to peak of the amplitude modulating factor and number of wavelengths contained between successive zeros of the modulating envelope. 2. If /, is the length of an imperfectly adjusted pendulum which gains n seconds in one hour at the same place, find the length of the second pendulum. 3. Find the natural frequency of the semicircular shell of mass m and radius r which rolls without slipping. 4. The speaker of public address system emits 20 W power. Considering it a point source (a) What is the sound intensity level at a point 4 m away? (b) At what distance from the speaker does the sound intensity level drop to half the level that it has at 4 m? 5. Suppose the sound intensity level in Chandigarh has been increasing by about l d B annually. What percentage increase in intensity does this correspond to? In about how many years would the intensity of sound double if it increased at ldB annually? SOLUTION 1. The two superposing waves are

PAPER - II
PHYSICS Section I (Q.No. 1 to 10) Comprehensive questions Comprehension -1 : A stable collection of charges One important question regarding a static distribution of charges was asked long back in 1904 by J.J Thomson, the discoverer of electron. Thomson's question was this: How should n identical point charges be distributed on a plane circular area such that the total electrostatic energy of the distribution is minimum? Since the time of Thomson, a lot of effort has gone into answering this seemingly simple question. Common sense would suggest that ^identical charges, constrained to be on a circular area, would lie on the circumference and arrange themselves on a regular polygon of T sides. V But the answer is not that simple. In 1985 Satanand Gupta came up with a very surprising answer for the distribution of these charges. He showed that the simple intuitive answer is all right as long as there are 11 or less charges. When there are 12 charges, be found that for minimum energy, 11 charges should be spaced symmetrically on the circumference of the circle and one charge should sit at the centre. He said that for all N > 12, the minimum energy arrangement will have ,V- 1 charges equally spaced on the circumference and one charge at the centre of the circle. Improved calculations in 1986 by Tikam Roopchandani indicated that Satanand's results are valid only for N = 12 to 17. For N= 18, he found that 16 charges should be placed symmetrically on the circumference and the two charges should be placed symmetrically about the centre at some distance from it. When one more charge is added to this (i.e. N = 19), the added charge should go to the centre and rest everything remains same. For greater values of N no conclusive results have yet been obtained and this problem is still keeping many scientists occupied. May be in future one of you would be able to get to the correct result for a general value of Nl 1. Suppose that you are given six identical point charges and you have arranged them in a circular region of area A such that the potential energy of the system is minimum. Then the distance between the two adjacent charges would be

Comprehension - 2 : Stable and unstable equilibrium A body is said to be in equilibrium when the net vvvvvvvwvutvv force acting on it is zero. figure 1 Suppose that it is displaced slightly from the equilibrium position. After displacement, if the forces act on it in such a way that it is displaced further away from the equilibrium position then it is said that the equilibrium \\\\\\ is unstable. On the other flgure 2 hand, if the forces act on it in such a way that the body tends to move back to equilibrium position, then we say that the equilibrium is stable. Lastly, if the body neither tends to move away nor towards the equilibrium position, we say that the equilibrium is neutral. For example, if a hemisphere is kept on a flat horizontal plane as shown in figure 1 then it is easy to see that the hemisphere is in stable equilibrium. On the other hand, if we manage to balance a table-tennis ball over a football as shown in figure 2 then the tabletennis ball will be in unstable equilibrium. Some elementary questions of stability are answered by common sense as seen in above examples. But there is a large variety of questions which may require some mathematical figure 3 calculations. We will study one such case. Suppose that a body (Body-I) with a curved bottom is balanced on a body (Body-II) with curved top as shown in figure 3. It is given that no slipping is possible between the bodies. Body-I will be in equilibrium when its centre of mass lies vertically above the point of contact. Let and R2 be the radii of curvature of two surfaces at the point of contact. Let the height of centre of mass of body-I be at a height h above the point of contact. Then it can be mathematically proved that if the upper body is displaced slightly from the equilibrium position, it will be in 1 1 1 Stable equilibrium if /, ^ ^ 2 ' Contd. on page no. 60

The drag force acting on the ball as it sinks is well approximated at low speed v by F^ = —bv, where b is a constant. We also take the density of water to be = 1000 kg/'m3 and its refraction index as nw = 1.33. (a) Derive an expression for the instantaneous depth y of the ball as a function of a, h, and d. (b) Having calculated the depth of the ball as a function of time, the observer can then construct the following table for the speed of the ball as a function of time: Time [s] 0.000 0.010 0.025 0.075 0.125 0.175 Speed [m/s] Time [s] 0.000 0.0910 0.2086 0.5081 0.6823 0.7836 0.225 0.275 0.325 0.375 0.425 0.475 Speed [m/s] 0.8425 0.8767 0.8966 0.9082 0.9145 0.9155

(b) Calculate the torque that must be supplied by the bicycle wheel to produce the required average electrical power for the bulb. State briefly two other simplifying assumptions that must be made. (c) What is the amplitude of the current induced in the coil under these conditions? (d) To the extent that the lightbulb obeys Ohm's Law, and that its resistance is constant, by what factor would the power delivered to the bulb increase if the cyclist tripled the bicycle's speed (presumably downhill or at the Tour de France)? The long jump as an Olympic sport dates back at least as far as 700 BC. Unlike in the modern Olympics, it was practised not only from a running start, but also from a standing start. The length of a jump was measured (as it still is) from the point where the back of the feet touched the ground on landing. Paintings on ancient Greek vases depict athletes jumping from a standing start while holding compact weights in both hands. Examples of these have been dug up by archaeologists, and typical ones, made of stone or lead, each have a mass of around 3 kg. (a) Write a short paragraph explaining qualitatively how athletes could boost their performance, ie. jump further from a standing start, by carrying such weights. More precisely, describe what they would have done with the weights during the jump. You can accept that, as biomechanics research has shown, a loaded body could take off at the same speed and angle as an unloaded one. (b) Estimate by how much the length of a 3 m j ump could be increased for a 65 kg athlete jumping at an angle of 50°. Remember that this takes place from a standing start, not a running start like today's long jump. You can take the centre of mass of the body to be at a height of lm above ground and the length of the arms to be 65 cm. Also, at the moment of takeoff, the athlete is leaning forward so that his shoulders are about 15 cm in front of the centre of mass of his body. SOLUTIONS
SECTION A

From these data, find the initial acceleration of the ball and estimate at which value its speed will stabilise. Then calculate the density of the ball and obtain a value for the drag coefficient b. Bicycle headlights are often powered by a generator, with the rim of the generator's shaft rolling against the tire's rim due to the rotation of the wheel. The shaft is rigidly connected to a coil within the generator which rotates in a magnetic field B. In one such generator, the coil has 125 turns of wire and a cross-sectional area of 0.0010 m2, immersed in a field of magnitude 0.080 T. At the area of contact with the tire, the rim of the generator's shaft has a radius of 1.25 cm. The tire's diameter is 66 cm. (a) If the lightbulb in the headlight needs 5.0W of average electrical power, corresponding to a voltage amplitude of 4.0V, to produce a decent amount of light, calculate the linear speed of the bicycle needed, assuming no slipping anywhere in the problem.

= 9.9 kg/s (a) Since the generator shaft contacts the tire very close to its edge, we can take its tangential speed v to be that of the bicycle wheel, and therefore the linear speed of the bicycle itself. This is related to its rotational speed 0) by v = cor, where r is the radius of the shaft. As is readily derived from Faraday's law applied to the rotating coil with N turns and area A, immersed in a uniform magnetic field with magnitude B, the voltage output of the generator as a function of time is e = atNBA sin m and its amplitude is therefore emax = mNBA. Combining these expressions leads to re v=• NBA (1.25 x 10 m)(4.0V) = 5.0 m/s (125)(0.080 T)(1.0 x 10~ 3 m 2 ) (b) The average torque supplied by the tire's rotation is given by T = /VOJ, with P the average mechanical power. If we ignore any loss due to (i) friction and (ii) the resistance of the coil, P is also the average electrical power produced by the generator. Then T = rP/v _ (1.25xl0~ 2 m)(5.0 W) 5.0 m/s = 1.25 x 10- 2 N'm (c) The power amplitude P is twice the average power, and the maximum current is therefore I mx =P mx mx = (^ 0 W)/(4.0 V)' = 2.5 A a a /e a 1 ' (d) Assuming that the light bulb obeys Ohm's Law, the power it consumes goes like the square of the voltage supplied at constant resistance. Since that voltage goes like the linear speed of the bicycle, power is proportional to v2. If that speed triples (to 15 m/s, or 54 km/hr), the power supplied is multiplied by 9. The bulb may well burn out! 27. (a) The centre of mass of the body of the athlete loaded

The terminal speed can be read off the table as approximately v f = 0.916 m/s2. The total instantaneous downward force F acting on the ball when it has speed v is F = Mg- p„Vg-bv ...(i) where Mg is the gravitational force, p w Vg is the upward buoyancy force if the ball has volume V, and bv is the drag force. By Newton's second law, F= Ma, where a is the acceleration of the ball. • Initially, v is small enough that the drag force can be ignored, and we can write with p w | the density of the ball.

with the weights follows a parabolic trajectory. Then, if the jumper thrusts the weights forward at arm's length as he jumps, the centre of mass lies a bit forward and higher from its position than if there were no weights. In midflight, the athlete then swings the weights down and back-ward before landing, which puts the point of contact of his feet at a position slightly further ahead with respect to the centre of mass then if no weights were carried. There is also an extra enhancement coming from the upward vertical motion of the body with respect to the centre of the mass as the weights are swung down before landing, in effect extending its trajectory a bit further forward, (b) Let M be the mass of the body and m the total mass of the weights. The position of the centre of mass is given by R = (X,Y): Mrj + mr2 _ r\ +jf>2 R=M +m \ + ml M where r, and r2 are the positions of the centre of mass of the body and the centre of mass of the weights, respectively. The initial shift in the position of the centre of mass of the body due to the weights is then . „ Mn+mr-) Ar A R=— = M+m \ + M lm where Ar = (Ax, Ay) = r2 - r,. With M = 65 kg and m = 6 kg, this gives AR = 0.085 Ar. Let us break down the effect into three parts, two horizontal ones and one vertical. • At take-off, the weights are held at arm's length (arms horizontal). Assuming 65 cm as the length of the

arms, plus another 15 cm for the horizontal position of the shoulders relative to the centre of mass of the body leaning forward, we have Ac = x, - xx = 80 cm, which gives AX = 6.8 cm. • At landing, the arms are swung backwards. We assume that then arms make an angle of 40° with the vertical. Then the centre of mass of the body is 0.0845 sin 40°(60 cm) = 3.3 cm ahead of the centre of mass of the system. • If the athlete always lands in a crouching position, whether or not he carries weights, it is reasonable to assume that the vertical position of the weights has shifted by up to one metre between take-off and landing. Therefore, when the trajectory of the system's centre of mass is at the vertical position it would have at landing with tout weights, the centre of mass of the body is higher by about AY= 0.085 x lm = 8.5 cm. The angle of the trajectory being about 50°, the corresponding horizontal extension of the length of the jump is AX = AF/tan 50° = 7.1 cm. Totalling these three contributions gives an extension of the jump's length of about 17 cm. This is of course quite dependent on the assumptions we made, but gives a reasonable estimate. No; Athletes were not allowed to throw the weights while in flight, which makes sense as the long jump was not meant as a weight-throwing contest on top of the jump itself. *>

You Can Meet The Challenges
When one looks at the question papers for the past many years, one thing is clear. The general standard is rising. 2r For IIT, one has to not only know the concepts thoroughly but must have also the ability to calculate fast the applications which are dependent on many concepts for the same problem. In fact, for the purpose of studying physics, chemistry, mathematics whether one goes for any exam or not, the most important things are the concepts in each chapter. If the basic concepts are clear and the student develops the attitude to think, to ask why, and seek the answers to the logical limit, there is no need to fear any exam here or in the universities. IIT-JEE or AIEEE or PMT, in fact any exam can be tackled if the concepts are clear. Of course speed and accuracy should be the keyword for success. Speed comes with practice. To learn to go straight to the heart of the problem, reducing the given problem to elementary ones is all that is needed. Practice and practice as if the winning of the test matches depends on you.

Think, think straight, and go to the roots of the problem when studying, then REVISE, REVISE. This is the key for success. Revise immediately after you have learnt something; revise again and again till you know your subject like the palm of your hand. One doen not learn 50% truth for passing, 60% truth for getting the cut-off percentage and reserve 100% learning for the rest. Either one works for 100% or one does not work. What you get is not in your hands. But you work for is in your hands. Revise everything from class XI onwards. Do not leave anything or play Monte Carlo. You can win anything if you have the will to do it. Trust in God and buckup. Editor

By: Prof. Rajinder Singh Randhawa* 1 A cylinder of weight W and radius R is to be raised on to a horizontal step of height h as shown in figure. A rope is wrapped around the cylinder and pulled horizontally. Find the minimum force F necessary to raise the cylinder and the reaction force at A assuming the cylinder does not slip. A ladder rests on the floor, leaning against a wall of coefficient of static friction between the ladder and floor is |i, and that between ladder and wall is p.2> What is the minimum angle 0 that ladder can make with the floor if the ladder is not to slip? (Assuming there is uniformly distributed mass). 3. A rod of mass M and length I is pivoted at the top. A body of mass m and velocity v hits at distance d from the top and stick to it. Find the ratio of initial energy to the final energy. 5 A spherical ball of mass m and radius r moving with velocity u strikes elastically a rigid surface at an angle a to the normal. Assuming that slipping occurs while the sphere is in contact with the surface and coefficient of friction is p. Find (p) coefficient of friction in terms of a and (3 when the ball is reflected at an angle |3 to the normal. SOLUTIONS 1. The moment of arm x of the weight relative to the =^2Rh-h2

A spherical ball of mass m and radius r is projected along a rough horizontal surface so that initially (;t = 0) it slides with linear speed u but does not rotate. As it slides, it begins to spin and eventually rolls without slipping. How long does it take to begin rolling without slipping?

Squaring and adding up (i) and (ii), we get N=
